I live in Bloomington, Indiana with my husband of 40+ years, John. Our son, Aaron, lives in New York City and daughter Sarah has passed. My interests are traveling, military history, singing, and gardening. I am a Great Highland Bagpiper and Scottish Country dancer. In addition to being Secretary to FOBII, I am on the board for the Scottish Society of Greater Bloomington, Area 10 Senior games, and a member and editor of the newsletter at New Unionville Baptist Church. I am very proud of my Scottish heritage.
